The theme this month is “transportation and health” which we know are connected.

We’d like to make those connections stronger by inviting transportation experts from Arlington County Commuter Services, goDCgo, and Washington Area Bicyclist Association. They’ll join us this month to relate some of our most pressing health problems to solutions in sustainable transportation.

In the meantime, feel free to join them on twitter: @BikeArlington , @goDCgo , @WABAdc or on the web: WalkArlington , Arlington Transportation Partners

Why a tour? Have you:

  • Wanted to see the Center for Total Health?
  • Been to the Center for Total Health for an event but didn’t have time to “see” it”?
  • Been interested in Total Health and want to network with others?
  • Been wondering how you can incorporate active transportation into your life?

Then this experience is for you!

We’ll walk you through the history and interactive exhibits describing Total Health, while you network with colleagues who are similarly interested the future of health and health care.

For maximum interaction and comfort, the tour group size is limited to 20 participants.

How to get here:

The Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health is located in Union Station Place. If you take the red line metro, exit Union Station stop and walk into Union Station.

Follow signs to “Kaiser Permanente” in Union Station. Take elevators to the “LL” level. After a long walk, you will arrive at the Kaiser Permanente Capitol Hill Medical Center. Take elevators to the “G” level, EXIT the building to the street, turn left, and walk 200 feet. The facilities are not connected.

If the door is not open, push the doorbell and we will be out to greet you.

You’ll know you’re in the right place if you see a very large video touch wall when you walk in.

Please allow at least 10 minutes of walking if arriving by Metro.
